    Which slayer is best to use against Unbound Energy Vortexes ? Elemental Slayer or Air Elemental Slayer ? How much more damage does the Super Slayer do compared to the Air Elemental Slayer ?

    Thx for answering my thread. I am just wondering why is the Air Elemental better to use than the Super Slayer ? I always thought that the Super Slayers gave more damage. Also, which slayer is best to use against Navrey Night Eyes-Spider or the Super Slayer-Arachnid ?

    "Lesser Slayers do triple damage, and Super Slayers do double damage. "

    For Navrey you want to use a spider slayer.

    Also a set of stone boots might come in handy.

    Elemental Slayer = 2x damage
    Air Elemental Slayer = 3x damage

    Tested with my sampire using honor. I see no difference between Air Ele and Elemental slayer. Both cap out at the same numbers for me. Maybe I'm already capped on DI but sampire doing armor ignores makes no difference. Ele slayer cheaper to imbue since ele uses an ingredient easier to get.

    I hit with both for 177 dmg per hit with max perfection.

    Air Elemental weight less in the imbuing , so you can max out more the others properties on the weapon, also honor dont make you max damage at start with an ele slayer. So its twice advantage for air elemental in this situation.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what advantage do "stone boots" give? (I've never crafted those)...

    I stopped farming these recently but have basically come up with the best setup for farming them...

    Double axe, 100% poison damage, air elemental slayer, mana leech, stam leech, and however much DI you need.

    With GM anatomy, 120 tactics 0 lumberjacking (which would be badass to gm...) my double strikes do 240dmg, with the possibility of counter-attack doubling it to ~500dmg :owned:

    But I guess I can't count counter-attack as part of my double strike swing... but when it goes off during a double strike and during one of my swings it's pretty badass seeing 4x120s pop up

    Assuming it keeps you stuck in place when Navrey tries pulling you in with spiderwebs.

    Ahh, yes... I went back to your post and you did mention Navrey... My brain was stuck on the OP's question re. UEV's... Thx... Good to know for when I get around to seeing what Navrey's all about... ;)

    You'd hit dmg cap with just perfection and air ele slayer alone.

    With these, you will do more DMG because they come before the 300% dmg cap:
    120 Anatomy +60%
    120 Tactics +70%
    100 Lumberjacking (if using an axe) +30% with a 10% chance for a +100% swing
    150 STR

    Then remember to use counter-attack if you have parry.

    Lesser slayer caps out your 300% dmg multiplier... Search logrus posts... he detailed all this. There are a lot of similar terms and such.
